Item description for Micah: Volume XXIB (Forms of the Old Testament Literature Series) by Ehud Ben Zvi, Gene M. Tucker & Rolf P. Knierim...
Overview In this volume Ben Zvi explores the prophetic book of Micah as a written document that presents itself as YHWH's word. The starting point of this study is that such a written document was meant to be read and reread by an ancient audience, so that commentary begins by addressing the questions of how the book was likely read by its intended or primary readers, why they read it, who read it, and to whom it was read and why.
Publishers Description The Forms of the Old Testament Literature Series has long been acknowledged as a unique and valuable commentary on the Old Testament. The volumes in the FOTL series are specifically concerned to explore the structure, genre, setting, and intention of each type of biblical literature so the fullest possible meaning of Scripture can be uncovered. This new addition to the FOTL commentary series presents a complete form-critical analysis of the book of Micah. Ehud Ben Zvi looks at how Micah was read by its ancient audience and explores the social setting that stands behind it. Emphasis is placed on the construction of the past, on the images of the future, and on the relevance of both of these to the present of the community or communities of readers for whom the book was intended. His various lines of investigation lead to a deeper understanding of Micah and its enduring message.
